Crossref PubMed Puech P. Typical counterclockwise atrial flutter. Direct AF ablation has been proposed by some groups as a complement to CTI ablation in patients with both arrhythmias, and even in those with only flutter, to reduce the later incidence of AF. Can J Cardiol ; This can be used to help identify arrhythmias in patients with nonspecific symptoms, to identify triggers, and to detect associated atrial arrhythmias.

Prevention of thromboembolic complications: Atrial flutter is similar to atrial fibrillation in many fluutter eg, underlying disease, predisposing factors, complications, and medical managementand some patients have both atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation.

Radiofrequency ablation of atrial flutter: Sudden death is not directly associated with atrial flutter. These procedures may be complicated by the induction of multiple MRT circuits that are not clinically documented.

Classification of atrial flutter and regular atrial tachycardia according to electrophysiologic mechanism and anatomic bases: Radiofrequency catheter ablation of atrial flutter: Following cardioversion, anticoagulation should be maintained for a minimum of 3—4 weeks in patients with low embolic risk.


Secondary prevention, based on the treatment of associated atrial fibrillation risk factors, is emerging as a therapeutic option. Rapid heart rates may produce significant symptoms in patients with pre-existing heart disease and can lead to inadequate blood flow to the heart muscle and even a heart attack. General treatment goals for symptomatic atrial flutter are similar to those for atrial fibrillation. Typically initiated by a premature electrical impulse arising in the atriaatrial flutter is propagated due to differences in refractory periods of atrial tissue.

The rhythm is due to macroreentry, there is an excitable gap, and the rhythm can be entrained. Immediately after an umbilical venous catheterization, a tachycardia appeared without preexistent cardiac dysfunction.

Atrial Flutter, Typical And Atypical

When the electric activity moves in a clockwise direction, the electrocardiogram ECG will show positive flutter waves in leads II, III, and aVF, and they may appear somewhat sinusoidal.

Isolated atrial flutter is an extremely rare form of supraventricular tachycardia in the neonatal period.

Atrial fibrillation and flutter after coronary artery bypass surgery: It can evaluate right and left atrial size, as well as the size and function of the right and left ventricles, and this information facilitates diagnosis of valvular heart disease, left ventricular hypertrophy LVHand pericardial disease.

Atrial flutter

Atrial flutter was first identified as an independent medical condition in by the British physician Sir Thomas Lewis — and colleagues. Ann Intern Med ; Facilitating influence of disopyramide on atrial flutter termination by overdrive pacing. Tachycardia may or may not be present, depending on the degree of AV flurter associated with the atrial flutter activity.

Br Heart J ; Endocarditis infective endocarditis Subacute bacterial endocarditis non-infective endocarditis Libman—Sacks endocarditis Nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis. As per the Law relating to information storage and personal integrity, you have the right to oppose art 26 of that lawaccess art 34 of that law and rectify art 36 of that law your personal data.

Atrial flutter is associated with a variety of cardiac disorders.

Management of atypical flutter does not differ from that of typical flutter, but the more frequent association with structural heart disease and the multiple possible mechanisms causing an atypical ECG pattern are important factors to consider before making therapeutic decisions.
